Critique my mare

I'm wanting to breed a Small (15 - 15.1hh) saddle cob or saddle/show cob (like the uk ones), since we don't A, have small RIDs here or B, anything resembling a true UK saddle/show cob, I'm thinking of trying to get close enough to what I want by breeding my own :)
So what do you think of her for breeding a nice heavy hunter or saddle/show cob type? Pics are of both Mare & stallion....
Stallion is 14.2hh with 10 & 3/4" bone Gypsy Cob
My mare is 15.3hh with 8 & 3/4" bone NZ Gisbornebred.

Stallion

Showing how sold he is even as a baby!!!

I think you'd get a nice, solid foal. A beautiful one too!

Aww. I understand though, they look pretty when they're clean and taken care of, but they're probably super high maintenance... :(

I'm not either at all- however can't breed a big boned horse if you don't use a big boned stallion.
I only have 2 options for stallions Gypsy Cob (the tallest in Nz is 14.3hh) or RID, we only have 2 purebreds here & BOTH those are 16.3hh+ with about 10-10&1/2" of bone so no where near as powerful in build as the cobs are.

Mare and stallion do not compliment each other. She has faults in the same places he does.

Find a different stallion IMO.

The stallion is nothing special, very short coupled and rather bum high, I'd want something a bit bigger and less like a pony.
